Baby Jesus part of the setup - I cant contain my excitement - Finally a player that will excite!!

Is it true? How will he excite when we have no-one up supporting him. Still worry about his stature.

Just saw this on gaelic life.  He may become the greatest player that ever lived but how can you justify calling in a lad who only came on as a sub in the 2nd half against us in the senior championship.  Not there on merit and his club and second name obviously has a big part in the call up.  Another example of club loyalty from the leader to go with another errigal player who consistently played in recent years when there were numerous better options in this part of the county.

Strangely....I agree with some of this. He looked a real livewire v Coalisland in the Championship, but again - how much of this was a surprise element. I personally don't think he's warranted a call up myself, then again I'm on an internet message board - not in the selection process.

I'd argue here that the lads development will actually suffer going forward now - he'll surely not play any county football, will he be kept from playing for Errigal? Foresee problems ahead if there is some kind of exception made. Harte would be just that single minded to maybe attempt it too.

Maybe this call up is just for the McKenna Cup though and I could be overreacting. We'll need to see.

He wn 3 county titles in a row at Kilcoo. He's got pedigree. Wouldn't say it was all about the pound as Killyclogher are a serious side.

A) Yes, raises the standards for everyone else - nothing lasts forever. Should Dublin try and not dominate? They are making hay while the sun shines, let them at it.
B) At the minute no, unless Horan pulls a rabbit from the hat no. Mayo are the only group of men that can take on the Dubs in my opinion.
C) Maybe, but I don't think changing the rules of the sport in an attempt to take away from one to try and give to others is the answer either.

Kerry should do well enough this year, they unearthed quite a few players last year - maybe this year they can pull a few more?

Galway hopefully will continue their upward curve also.

That's a big coup for Killyclogher if it's sealed.

Present form means nothing for games to be played in February. Injuries, drop in form, January acquisitions, so many factors before the next round.

Exactly, Madrid have routinely been off the pace in Spain at this time of the year. Come February they are a different proposition.

Although I suspect the loss of Ronaldo and his influence might not see them as feared this year.

Any word of managerial appointments or what teams are looking for new men?

Clonoe, Edendork, Coalisland, Dungannon, Derrylaughan all sticking I've been told. Moy still deciding ? Not convinced of the accuracy of the latter personally, but few names have been mentioned.

Big Sean not staying on with the Moy?
Who replaced Crozier at Omagh??

Media Obligations v Club commitments had the Moy asking a few teams last year to change games so it could suit.

Watched a repeat of the Lomanchenko fight at the weekend. What an operator. That flurry of headshots in Rd 11 was relentless. Great scrap

He's scarily good. 13 Pro Fights and Arum has stated that he's only looking challenges going forward  ;D

Benny put the case for I think MAY have happened. It was a banana skin not a banana that'd mean it was probably bought for eating not throwing. It wouldn't be that unusual for things to pegged at a player in a high emotion game like that, maybe the lad just had it in his hand and lobbed it. Doesn't stop him from being a dick though, he's been charged but I'd say it be hard to make racial element, if there is any, stick.

One good thing the Sterling thing has done is make the papers squirm they are at the root of most of the hate in my opinion. Over the years they treated people like Beckham, Graham Taylor, Gazza, Rooney plus many more appallingly

Agreed and Sterling should be commended on how he has reacted to this. Thought he came across very well in the Man City documentary - obviously it's edited extremely kindly, but even still as a person he was not who we are told he 'should be'.

Unfortunately this looks like another instance however when one person (or a few) have obviously let themselves down a complete bagful in the national eye - but, they are average joes so nobody will care tomorrow. Quick - lets get the next Celeb head on the chopping block though.

Boycey, I was thinking that myself. Someone may have just eaten a banana and fired it in frustration at his own team or at an opposing player. I donít know what they eat at soccer matches, but Iíve seen manyís an apple, orange, banana etc eaten at GAA matches.

I'm as open minded as the next man lads but there can be minimal chance that someone has thrown a Banana/Banana Skin at a Black player, just after scoring a goal and it not be a racial incident.

As for the GAA thing, not exactly many young lads from the Gabon togging out in corner forward at any games I've been to.

After the recent rugby trial thread on this board - I would have thought that innocent until proven guilty would have been drilled into even the most bloodthirsty here.

Not to stand up for a Chelsea fan, guilty or not - which is to be decided, ultimately the only person knows are the immediate vicinity witnesses and Sterling himself but there isn't a game played in the Premier League which a player doesn't get a load of it when he goes to take a corner. The amount of shock at this like it's a one off (again, assuming verbal abuse only) is beyond absurd. It happens every week, in every game. I'm not saying it's ok by any means, but Christ, some need to catch a grip here. Talk about jumping on a bandwagon.

I also find it quite insane how a Banana can be thrown at a black player just 7 days prior and there's not one post on it in this thread yet there's men out to hang people with what could be racist abuse / might not be - there is reasonable doubt (right now). This seems to be a more sticking the boot into Chelsea / Chelsea fans than actually caring about the subject from some here - which is really petty.

Anyway, if it was racial abuse - Raheem Sterling should be absolutely lauded for his reaction and restraint. Remarkable from the young man who people have said before is a bit of target for most kinds of abuse.

Who/where are all these people sticking the boot into Chelsea?

The banana skin incident mightn't have been racial either..

You must be trolling.

If he hits in the USA - the financial gain long term will be enormous and it wouldn't be completely mad (if successful) to see an Irishman manage the USA National Soccer team, if he made a name for himself in the MLS2 or whatever this outfit league is called, it's not beyond realm of possibility he'll be at the MLS sooner than many think.

Jimmy has the head screwed on, Derry City/Dundalk....all these teams will always be there. He makes it in the USA he's set for life.

Steady on there

Do you know who this is? He's an Irishman who has been a USL coach for 4 years now - who has won the USL Championship for the last 2 years.




Nobody has a clue who he is - that's the point.

This is the United States - its not essential that you actually are the best at what you do as long as you have some sort of personality / PR / selling point.

it isn't - USL players are probably making $2,000 to $3,000/month during the season

Thanks Gabe.
So players earn that.

Why are people posting it is very lucrative what a manger earns??
